Just south of the River Spey on the edge of Cairngorms National Park, sits one of Scotland's most architecturally renowned distilleries—Tormore. The grounds are located in the heart of Speyside, neighbor to some of the country's highest peaks and deepest woods.
Tormore's construction began in 1958, in response to increasing demand for its owner's brand, Long John. Sir Albert Richardson was commissioned to design the facility, his vision inspiring what would become one of the most arresting examples of architecture to ever produce liquor.
Granite buildings, stone balconies, and copper roofs make for an attractive facade on the almost 60 year old site. Long John was taken over by Whitbread & Co. in 1975, who were sold in turn to Allied Domecq in the same year. Now under the ownership ofPernod, the Tormore is managed today by Chivas.
The most recent upgrade to Tormore's works was completed in 2012, bringing total production up to 4.4 million liters. The majority of the make is used in blends produced by Chivas Brothers.
Water for production is drawn from Achvochkie Burn after flowing through heather, peat and granite hills for a natural and effective purification. Tormore has never owned a malting floor, importing its malts from outside producers. Tormore is primarily aged in ex-Bourbon casks in offsite warehouses owned by Pernod.
